My #winterswap package for #litsylove is on its way now! 🤗 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Tineke

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Yay!!! 📦🎊🎉🙌🏻 2w
Tineke Looking forward to it! Mine will go out tomorrow. #cutting-it-close #living-on-the-edge 1w
Tineke I have it on good authority that your package will arrive today, because our mailservice has this service where they take a photo of your mail to let you know if you'll receive mail today. So I've compared your post and the photo and it's the same. 4d
mellissimo That's great! I forgot to label it as a Litsylove package but I'm sure you will recognize it anyway ;) Yours also arrived today! It looks great. I'm so curious already! ^^ 4d

I found this book in a second hand bookshop and finished it in one sitting. I didn't know anything about the Essex or Nantucket before and it was very fascinating. Usually I'm not a big fan of non fiction books but this one is written very captivating.

🔸And again I haven't been on Litsy for a while. I can't even explain it. Sometimes I just have phases where I am more of an offline person.😅But now I am excited to post and participate again! 😊

DrexEdit Totally have those phases myself! Welcome back! 😊 2mo

Hmm.. I liked the beginning of it. I didn't know before where the book was going and while reading it had no idea how the story might unfold, which made it a very interesting and creepy read first. But after a while the story felt kinda forced to me. It felt like the writer really wanted to show us some of these photos and that's why he thought of a connection to the story. I liked the idea behind it but for me it didn't really work out.

I have to share my new treasure with you! I found this on a bookfair two weekends ago. I love everything from Walter Moers but didn't know he had a new book. It made me so happy to find it between all the books at the fair! I can't wait to dive into it. I always recommend him to everyone and then it usually makes me sad that I already know all his books and don't have the chance anymore to read a book from him for the first time. And now I have!😍

Addison_Reads I love his books. They're so fun and unique. 7mo

I finished this last night. I absolutly loved the artwork. It was interesting to learn more about Auri. I liked how all these little things around her made her so happy and excited.
But I found it a bit repetitive after some time. In the endnote of this book Patrick Rothfuss wrote how the book is not for those people who expect a normal story with a normal story line. Well, I guess I'm 'those people' 😅

Outlander | Diana Gabaldon

I liked the biggest part of it. It is a story to get lost in, one of these books you just can't put away. I can totally understand why it is so popular. However, in the end I had to distance myself from all the violence and abuse.
I haven't decided yet, if I want to continue with the series. I bought it mostly out of curiosity.

aroc I agree, the violence and abuse is difficult but the story is so intricate that I tend to push past it and keep going. I love Jaime and Claire. 8mo
Kloves2read I love Jamie and Claire! I agree it's hard to read at time but the story on as a whole is nothing short of epic. My Favorite is book #3, Voyager. 6mo

I spent the weekend with my long distance boyfriend. Because of bad weather and storm the train ride took around 9 hours instead of the usual 8 hours both times...

I start to get the hype about these books now. It's a story to get completely absorbed in. Perfect for long train rides.

I read about 5 hours yesterday and finished Annihilation. I'm not a big fan of this book. Yes, it was creepy and this made it interesting, but it all stayed so far away. I didn't care about the characters. Everything was so unpersonal. Maybe it was supposed to be like this but for me it made reading it a bit boring. I'm curious about the Netflix movie now!

This one is a german comedian, so I guess most of you won't know him. Litsy also showed me an english translation of his books, but I don't know if those are as funny.

But at least in german this book was great. It's a funny yet clever read and I had to laugh out loud often. I still think that the first of his books was the best, but this one gets really close.

Since I wasn't a big fan of the first book of this trilogy (It was somehow to slow for me) it's alone my boyfriends fault that I started this one. It's his favourite series and he just left the book lying around in my flat. And now I absolutly love it! It turned out to be one of the books where you just can't stop reading until you're done. And now excuse me, I have to start the third one! 😃

I wanted to read this one for a long time and I'm glad I finally did it. But it won't become one of my favourite books. Sometimes it was interesting and somehow 'cozy' to read about all these difficult characters, and of course it is written so so beautifully, but then I really hoped for at least ONE good thing to happen in this entire story 😅

After Les Miserables and Wuthering Heights I should really find a less depressing read now. 😂

Was I really 5 months away from Litsy now? I guess sometimes I'm more of an offline person, or maybe I'm just more a cozy winter Litsy-reader 😅
But now I got hooked again. So here is the last book I read. I was so curious about this one but I have to admit I was kinda disappointed. I know that's a weird argument for a book with this title but I just found it so depressing 😅 I also had huge difficulties remembering all the names and characters🙈

mellissimo @mabell You can't see much of it on the photo but that's your llama blanket from the swap. I still love it! 😀 12mo

mabell Yay! I'm glad you still like it! And that's so funny, because I just took the blanket you gave me on our trip abroad a few weeks ago! 😄 I love mine too! 12mo
mellissimo @mabell what a coincidence! ^^ I'm glad to hear this. This blanket already saw a lot of the world then ;) 12mo

Thank you so much for this amazing #makerswap package @julesG ! Everything is made and picked with so much care! I'm so impressed by those knitted owls on the scarf! They look absolutly amazing! I'm already wearing the bracelet and the earrings right now ^^ I'm very curious to try finger knitting now.(my mum showed me real knitting very often when I was younger but I just couldn't remember what to do when 😂) The books also sound very interesting!

mellissimo @julesG Tut mir leid, jetzt habe ich doch vergessen zu posten als ich es bekommen habe. Es war in meiner Abholstation und die haben so blöde Öffnungszeiten, das ich es erst kurz vor knapp geschafft habe 🙈 1y
julesG Kein Problem. Ich bin froh, dass es angekommen ist. 1y
julesG Glad you like the box. 1y
julesG @LibrarianRyan - it's arrived 😉 1y
LibrarianRyan @julesG yeahhhhhhh. Very awesome box. @mellissimo I too have wanted to try finger knitting. I can do the real stuff but that has always looked fun. 1y

I did it!! I put my very own book on Amazon. 😄😄 I'm so excited!! It's german, so sadly only a few of my Litsy friends can read it.

Bis Freitag ist es noch kostenlos erhältlich und ich würde mich riesig über eine ehrliche Rezension freuen! ❤

DivaDiane @sander1095 I have a German account. Or at least I did, from when I lived there, but on my phone it automatically logs into my UK account and says it won‘t ship to the UK! Arrgh. It doesn‘t need shipping! 1y
Reggie Congrats!!! 1y
mellissimo @JazzFeathers It's about travellers that wait for a train in a small village in winter and because of all the snow the train can't come and people start to talk to each other. 😊 1y
mellissimo @julesg Kein Päckchen bis jetzt aber das dauert immer ein bisschen bis zu mir. Ich sage dir sofort Bescheid, wenn es ankommt 🙂 1y
mellissimo Thank you for all the congrats! That's why I love Litsy: No matter if it's good or bad news people on Litsy are always there for each other ❤ 1y
